We've always had excellent service and wonderful food since our first visit soon after you opened. We've been to your restaurant to celebrate family birthdays and anniversaries.

Service and good were great. Sauces for all dishes were flavoured to perfection. Lemon wipe at the end was a good and refreshing to clean dirty hands :-)

Went to Mela on Friday night, the restaurant was fairly busy (in a good way). The service was quick and the food was good. The portion sizes were good as was the quality, the flavours were nice but very mild even the 2 chilly dishes lacked any bite. We have found this to be a common problem in this area, having moved from London where curries can be both hot and tasty. I don't think throwing a couple of chopped chillies in just before serving counts so prefer not to go down the please can you make it hotter route. I know everyones tastes are different but all three of us enjoyed our meals but would have liked more heat.

Polite prompt service, the booking system worked perfectly and we were looked after without being too intrusive. Pomadoms were quickly on the table, the onion bharjis were ok but a bit too oily. Main courses were tasty and plenty, it’s not the very best curry I’ve had, but it’s good food and very good value. Recommend

Booked a table for 4 turned up slightly late no problems. We were sat quickly offered drinks straight away!! Food was served quick and was of a high standard. All around a great experience! I would of given it 10/10 rather than 9/10 if we hadn't of had to wait for the bill .

Very tasty food. Nice service. Was quiet on a Sunday night but that’s probably normal with people ordering takeaways. We just needed to get out for the evening. Service was fast. Good price. Will defiantly go again. Food Seems to be better in restaurant then having it delivered.

Fab food, friendly service! Good times all round, couldn't ask for more. Definetly a good place for a casual meal out on a Friday and didn't seem to mind us being drunk and a bit rowdy!

Our prawn puri starter was not what I expected. It was covered in a sauce more akin to a Chinese 'sweet & sour'. Main course and side dishes were fine but can't understand why the main dish is served already in your plate which makes it more difficult to share around the table.
